The Family Storyteller: Simple & Sweet | with Jamie Eilts

learn how to capture the sweet, simple, fleeting moments of childhood


in this course you'll learn

You’ve heard it said before that “the days are long, but the years are short”. As parents, we know this painful truth. Our children grow up quickly. The carefree days of childhood are so fleeting, and that's why it's crucial to learn how to document your everyday in an authentic, beautiful way.  In this 3-week workshop, you will learn: 

  • how to take a photograph or series of photographs in a way that tell a story so you can look back one day and remember exactly how you felt in the moment.

  • how to use light and color to help evoke feelings of nostalgia in your images.

  • how to break down the elements of a story: seeing your every day with fresh eyes and creative vision

  • how to use unique perspectives and composition in a way that is pleasing to the eye and unravel your story.

  • how to find your "one shot" and manipulate your image to aide in strong and creative storytelling. 

Join us in this comprehensive workshop and challenge yourself to learn how to be a better storyteller for your family.


If you aren’t capturing your family’s story, who will?
